I think boatercross is better suited as a short, observed event. Maybe from Smelter thru Santa Rita?

Silverton to Tacoma is a little too far for a Boater X. I think it should be 1/2 mile or less with areas for potential carnage, but nothing too dangerous.

An "extreme" race could be done. What about a section of Lime that is clean, but still Class V, maybe 3 miles or so in length where spectators can still watch? I am thinking somewhere on the first gorge (through Adrenaline?).
